What CPU and graphics card are you using, and with which power supply? Have you tried swapping the SATA power cables around, i.e. using the one that's powering the HDD to instead power the case LEDs? Do you have another cable you could use in addition or instead of the current one?
To quickly answer your question, the SSD should theoretically live forever. A conventional Hard Disk Drive or an old CD does not use batteries either, but can be read long after being written to. SSDs are a completely different technology using NAND flash memory to store data instead. In theory thesRead more
Thanks! I’m just looking for a CPU like mine that supports sse 4.2 so I can run the oculus app for under $100. Idk how this site works so I posted this as an answer first.

Hello, It looks like you're using an old Crosshair IV Formula motherboard which uses the AM3 Socket. If you were to upgrade to a Ryzen 3 1200, you would need an AM4 motherboard like the B450M. If you tell us what you plan on using your PC for and a budget, then we could suggest a CPU and MotherboardRead more
Hi, I had the same occurance. I found out that if you change your ram profile from auto to XMP Profile or some other faster settings, this will also lead to higher CPU temperatures. (Googling found several reasons: -CPU has to deliver and manage the clocking of the RAM -CPU has more work because ramRead more
Hi xXCh1k3NmanXx, Apologies for the late reply. What exactly would you like help with, my friend? https://youtu.be/VWyaB5MMCFQ - This is a fairly generic build video we have right now.
Hi Stephen, This is something we've struggled with in the office too. The 3600(X) has about 15% greater IPC so will be faster for games that still heavily utilize a single core - you're more likely to see a 5-10% improvement in most games assuming you're CPU limited. Both will be fine and produce veRead more
Hi Najib, I would recommend using Ryzen Master to measure CPU temperature as it will be the most reliable software-based solution. Unfortunately it only reports an average temperature over a 1 second window. The next best software is HWINFO, once you install it just run it with "sensors only" then sRead more
